Sea Duck Key Habitat Sites Atlas

This Atlas describes 85 important sites for sea ducks in North America, highlighting habitats that are most critical to sea ducks during at least one season.

It is intended to heighten awareness of valuable sea duck habitats, aid in prioritizing habitat conservation and protection efforts, and help in evaluating environmental assessments.

Key habitat site narratives in the Atlas include site descriptions, a summary of sea duck abundance and temporal importance of the site to sea ducks, and sensitivities or potential conflicts that may impact sea ducks or their habitats.
